Duke Arts Presents

Music in Your Gardens:
Young Bull

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 | 7:00 pm

We’re proud to present Young Bull as a part of Music in Your Gardens, a free eight-week online concert series showcasing nationally renowned artists who call Durham and the surrounding area home. The series shifts Duke Performances’ longtime summer series, Music in the Gardens, normally held outdoors at Sarah P. Duke Gardens on Duke’s campus, to an online format in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On August 12 at 7 PM ET, we’ll premiere a new, specially recorded performance by Young Bull online, free of charge, on our website and on our YouTube page. The film, pre-recorded in a socially-distanced manner, will be accompanied by a live YouTube chat with Young Bull, who will answer questions from viewers.


Young Bull is a homegrown R&B collective, yoking Southern soul grooves to hip-hop beats. It’s the project of two former schoolmates, Mique Cameron and Solomon Fox, who graduated from Durham School of the Arts. In 2016, Raleigh-based rapper Christian Sinclair joined the group, and Young Bull released its acclaimed debut, Sopadelic. These days, Young Bull reaches far beyond Durham. The band has reaped over five million streams, toured along the East Coast, and had coverage in Rolling Stone. Its latest EP, Young Bull is Not an Individual, lands in a dreamy soundscape, smooth and sampled, in the tradition of J Dilla. Dispatching from its hometown and namesake, Young Bull delivers soul music that wrangles with the modern.

Duke Performances presents Music in Your Gardens in collaboration with Duke Arts, WXDU, Sarah P. Duke Gardens, Duke Continuing Studies, and Duke Summer Session. Hospitality partners include The Palace International and Locopops. Media sponsor: WUNC Music.
